Update on NASA moonwalk video

Probably just a coincidence, but I just noticed that this New York Times blog post from last Friday—on the topic of lost moon landing video—opens with the exact same sentence as my blog post from a couple weeks ago on the same subject (“conspiracy theorists, start your engines”). Anyhow, my delusions of grandeur notwithstanding, it turns out the original Apollo 11 tapes were erased, and the “new” footage from NASA is just a freshly restored version. Monday is the 40th anniversary of the moon landing–here’s a Wired article on NASA’s festivities.
